reached the conclusion the defense secretary was vague. >> day after, or -- >> it took a while to really get the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> reporter: in addition to c.i.a. assessment before the acta, security in libya was deteriorating. in august, a defense department report on the rise of al-qaeda in libya there was another warning about islamic extremists and the potential for action. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western -- correction -- eastern libya were seeking to coalesce, but there wasn't anything specific. >> reporter: while the white house consistently cited the need for investigation to play out, fox news told 16 days after the attack there are still no f.b.i. agents on the ground in benghazi, because the security situation is too unstable. the chairman of the house homeland security says the statement smacks of pre-9/11 mind set. >> one thing we are supposed to learn on september 11 no, longer would we assume that these are criminal matters. but instead they're terrorists. terrorist attacks. >>
the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and be that wrong. >> greta: do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? i thought it was unusual that the ambassador of the u.n. would make that appearance after that event? i would have expected some other member
appears on the stage is very important. normally when a candidate gets defensive that is when they started looking bad. that happens with barack obama. it happened when he told hillary she was like have likable enough. it happened with mitt romney when he did the $10,000 bet with governor perry. it's very important that governor romney keeps making the case about the economy and keep pushing an alternative vision that the american people can see as a better path and a better way forward to improving the economic conditions. if he does that he will put the president on the defensive. if he allows the president to sort divide the audience, talk about women and myth of the war on women and talk about the middle-class and divide the country and gets on the defensive or talk about issues that are irrelevant to the economy, then that is place where governor rom can look at defensive and may not look as good to the audience. >> is it possible to be too prepared for the debate and candidate appears to be reading off a card imprinted in the back of his head because people are pounding him with info
and turned it from a defensive problem for the romney campaign into the advance of the way they will frail the race in terms of the stagnation economy that they accuse president obama of overseeing and the prosperity economy they are promising. >> let's help them get jobs so they can get a paycheck so they are good taxpayers. (applause) this is the point that we have been trying to make. sometimes the point doesn't get made the right way. we don't want a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we have added 15 million people to the food stamp roles in four years. largely there is no opportunity or economic growth. >>carl: that is the argument mitt romney hopes to make tomorrow night standing face to face with president obama. there has been mock debating today for mitt romney and stepped out if a quick snack and other than that it will be closed doors until the walk through tomorrow afternoon. >>trace: what about the 47 percent controversy. does governor romney have an answer do that? >>carl: he has been working through a series of answers on it. last night when he got to denver, he did
obama has called the concerns over iran noise, quote/unquote, and that secretary of defense leon panetta has repeatedly and emphatically outlined the dangers of military action against iran. and joe biden as he said has made fun of the whole thing. it doesn't sound like an open and shut commitment that the u.s. would use military option, general clark. what's your take? >> i think it's an open and shut commitment. i think the president said he'll do whatever it takes. i think he can do it. we know what the military option is. it's been talked about many times. you've seen it on display in iraq and afghanistan. we used a military option in kosovo when i was the commander, the iranians should be under no doubt that this option can be used. it will be effective and it will result in the destructure of the industrial potential and military potential of iran. the question is what's the best way to maneuver the iranians so you don't have to do that. because no one wants to use at least on this side in this government wants to use military force if you don't have to. always innocent people get
and loose with the truth when makes claims in defense of his own record and making allegations about mitt romney, his record and the way he has run his campaign. bill: give me an example. what has he said in a battle ground state or what as he said on a tv ad that has been disapproved? >> he made a claim that got four pinnochios from "the washington post" yesterday that 90% of the debt was run up under his predecessor. the david letterman interview that president obama gave last week on the debt and deficits was a veritable panoply of things that were at least misleading, and often just flat-out untrue. i think the president didn't get called on it. there were many more misleading statements in the 10 minute interview that president obama gave david letterman than anything in paul ryan's speech which as we saw led to the this explosion of fact-checking. bill: don't all politicians kind of take the truth and bend it a little bit, stretch it out for their own advantage? >> yes. that is an understatement. they do it all the time. everybody on all sides does it. and i think, you know, to a ce
a will county judge to postpone peterson's sentencing ... because of defense team in- fighting. the former bolingbrook police sergeant was convicted earlier this month of killing his third wife, kathleen savio., he's scheduled to be sentenced in november and faces up to 60 years in prison. attorney joel brodsky says arguments with other defense lawyers have prevented him from finishing a motion for a re- trial. he wants the judge to push back sentencing to december or january. chicago teachers vote on their new contract on tuesday-- and when it's ratified, it will put an end to some legal battles. in the contract, both the teachers union and the school board agree to drop lawsuits regarding layoffs and pay raises. yesterday, the cps board held its first meeting since the contract agreement. a teachers union official urged the board to release its reported plans to close dozens of under-enrolled and low performing schools. the board says while there is a need to reduce student capacity in the system, there is no list of schools targetted for closing. another school district in the chicago a
on 60 minutes ? >> i think that romney did, president obama looking defensive. and when he looks defensive he is not obama 2008. >> i do not agree, i think that own ebobama swept it he was cled looked human, and took characteristic that americans like about him, his likability. lou: i thought this first two parts, the two men were responding to questions, that was a tie between the two. have you two smart knowledgeable guys, second part with issue of leadership, scott pelley, and crop, and i mean, romney was terrific, i have to tell i, obama of flat as he could be. that is the reason i give the night to romney. >> thank you, both. appreciate it. >> thank you, lou. lou: a slow weekend at the box was on the, i mean close. somebody is getting kind of tired of hollywood. and what they are putting out, overall box office receipts down 25% from the si -- same period r ago, something is going on, hollywood better figure it out, iit may have something to to wih their talk about politics, and police drama end of watch, taking top spot with $13.1 million, that is all, and horror film, hous

. america, the department of defense needs educated americans around stem. if we are not educating them and the private sector said it is okay, prison is a big business but education isn't that is messed up. >> i want to comment on this. just to echo what will is saying i'm in favor of stem education. think of the high hool dropout in america. 28% of our young people in this country that aren't graduating. 28%. >> on education, america's big problem, it seems to me, the teachers aren't paid enough, not motivated or trained well enough. >> go to any college university campus and this is the cradle of innovation. this is where facebook came from, twitter, google, everything you can think of that is chapging the world came from apple, yahoo. >> yeah, yeah. >> it's coming from here. and you go, this is where the republicans need to address immigration policies. you go to a college campus and you will see people from korea, china, from asia, latin america. this is the country which everyone criticizes and yet wants to immigrate. >>> next big names with big goals. i ask my cgi panel what they
an state. but no one believes that it was just the work of mob. defense secretary telling reporters that benghazi was a terrorist attack that it did take him some time to reach that conclusion. >> reason it pretty clearly was a terrorist group because a group of terrorists, obviously conducted that attack on the consulate, against individuals. what terrorists were involved i still think remains to be determined by the investigation. >> reporter: a spokesman for the director of national intelligence telling fox that the best intelligence was provided to the administration, updates were also provided as additional intelligence came in and offered a more complete picture of the circumstances. >> shep: two weeks later, f.b.i. hasn't been able to get to the scene of the crime. they haven't been able to get to the city? >> reporter: they say the f.b.i. investigation needs to play out. there are no f.b.i. agents on the ground in benghazi because the security situation is too ten us on. the chairman of homeland security it smacks of a pre-9/11 mind set. >> one thing we learned back on septe
defensive about this video, especially when in recent days administration officials really moved off their message about the video and started talking about the attack in libya, especially being a premeditated terrorist attack. and i think again, there are so many problems in the middle east, jamie. syria, iran, what is happening in egypt and libya, we need to move away from talking about the video and start talking what we're doing about these problems. jamie: i'm not going to give it another minute of coverage, because if anything it may play one role in all of the unrest but there is certainly the anti-american sentiment around the world. and the president said that we have hopes in common with the muslim world. that we should focus on that as well. what are those hopes? what do we have in common? >> well, jamie, i think there are people in the middle east who share our values. there are certainly countries in the middle east who share our interests but i think what we got in this speech was --. jamie: oh, michael sync, we'll be back with us if we can re-establish that. jon? jon:
? >> reporter: presumably what's going on here is that like any defense attorney the legal team representing paolo gabriele in this process is trying to create sympathy for their client and one of the ways they are trying to do that is to suggest that some of that testimony that he gave to vatican investigators during the preliminary investigation over the summer may have come under duress and, therefore, should be taken with a grain of salt. now what the vatican will tell you, suzanne is some of these conditions such as keeping the light on all time and having people go in and out of his cell a lot to check open him was largely because he was under a sort of a suicide watch. these were obviously extraordinary circumstances. the guy was under enormous pressure. they were worried he might try to harm himself. they will argue some of the condions he's describing were not intended to harm him, they were actually intended to keep him safe. this is kind of the standard opening skirmish that goes on in virtually any criminal trial. >> the butler is saying he handed over these documents because he
and words probably designed to help romney. on the other hand, you have barack the defense minister trying to help obama with the public words and statements. >> i think brack -- >> how will that dynamic be affected by the november election result here? >> i don't think it will be very -- i mean, it might affect the jewish population vote more or less but i don't think ehud barack, the defense minister endorsed -- >> when you have netanyahu going out of the way to talk about -- present the image of strained relations and then choosing to go public and say israel's never had a better friend in the white house than barack obama. that seems -- >> when you are prime minister, you have the upper hand. you're the voice of the country. you are the most important man. you know, when jimmy carter used to say, israel has no morn policy and only domestic policy. this time in history we see somebody interfering and clearly endorsing one of the sides and it's never happened in the history. and it's doing it in a very delicate moment for the u.s. relation in the middle east, doing it in a -- plus even h
missile crisis, he could unleash irritation on small things. here a defense department official spent a lot of money on furniture for pregnant mrs. kennedy if she went into labor and he's furious. >> wasn't to find out who paid for that furniture and i want the incompetent who took his picture next to mrs. kennedy's bed. i wouldn't have him running a cat house. >> reporter: nowhere are the tapes more moving and revealing than the secret moral issue than the struggle for civil rights. the great issue tearing the country apart. and after a young man james meredith creates a crisis by enrolling in the all white university of mississippi. >> james meredith was inspired by my father's inaugural address and decided then he wanted to enter the university of mississippi. so then this whole drama unfolded. >> reporter: this is the president taking on the staunch segregation as the governor of mississippi wanted to inject meredith into an angry mop. >> why don't you give an order to have him removed? >> how can i remove him? when there's a riot in the street? he may step out of that building an
hours after the attack and then the libyan defense ministry sent round about five guards who sit in a row of chairs along the main gate and don't let anybody in. i was able a few days ago to convince them to let me stick my head round just to have a peep inside but they haven't let anybody inside since 12 days ago. ay pelley: liz, thanks very much. our correspondent john miller is leining us now. he's a former assistant director of the f.b.i. and he's been talking to his sources on all of this. john, why has the f.b.i. team not made it to benghazi yet? he the f.b.i. team arrived there ite last week in tripoli, but in talking to the local revernment there-- and that's the way these things go overseas is you are working with the host avernment and the libyans have looked at the situation there and said introducing a couple of ozen americans into a brittle environment back in benghazi into that compound is something that would be pretty tough to tcure. se they keep saying we're srking on it. e opelley: we saw evidence of that in liz's piece just then. s wonder, have the libyans said

to give a statesman-like speech. >> president obama gave a siring defense speech. tell us about that. t >> the anti-american protests were raging across the middle east as a result. so what president obama did was, listen, the united states definitely approve of the video. but when we are talking about dma acy in the region, this is a part of that. >> the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression. it is more speech. the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and bl blasphemy. >> some of the leaders say we need to have some international law banning blasphemy and the anti-religious rhetoric. not just in their own countries where it exists but around the world. listen to the president, hamid karzai, talking about this subject. >> such acts cannot be called freedom of speech or explex. equally, they cannot give reason for the protests to be used inside the terrible losses of lives. >> what president obama did then was said, listen, if you want to have blasphemy be horrible, then you have to talk about a church being burned in israel and if the holocaust is -- this t
, have seen many events, have witnessed many events. we have eight years of the holy defense in which saddam hussein backed by many western powers was against our nation, and then witnessed many other events. about ten years ago, perhaps, iran was under direct threat. those who have occupied iraq and afghanistan were threatening iran on a daily basis. i do not believe that we are under any special conditions now from those sources, but the fact that the world -- historic period in the worlis coming to an end, an era during which power has set the first and last word. those holding the keys to power have set the fate of many populations. that era is coming to an end. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammed. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi in libya. the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attack which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoug
